Who runs for 100 miles?

I am in awe of my chiropractor, Kodi Panzer, for completing a 100-mile race this past weekend in the Casso?day and Matfield Green area.

She finished it in a mere 22 hours and 34 minutes. It takes me nearly two months to walk that many miles. That, my friends, is almost a full day of running, which is almost unbelievable.

It?s also almost unbelievable that she performed 86 chiropractic adjust?ments last Wednes?day to raise funds for the local library. It was a great promotion for a great cause.


Here is another gem from the 1930-31 booklet that I couldn?t fit in last week because of space, but wanted you to see it.

?RULES OF CONDUCT: All students are expected to exercise self-control and to put themselves under the restraint which is necessary to maintain the standard and the purpose of our high-school. The use of tobacco in any form, intoxicating liquor, gambling, and unbecoming language are prohibited to the student on the ground and in the school building during school days. The students are expected to take the right attitude of cooperation towards their instructors. Students are expected to come to school to work and not to loaf, hours of leisure and play are after dismissal. Students are asked to respect school property, keep rooms, desks, tables, library, and laboratory rooms in a respectable condition. The students are not allowed to arrange for class parties during the school days without the consent of the Superintendent or Principal and without providing for a suitable chaperon. The Hillsboro High School Faculty solicits and invites every student whose aim is to build Socially, Morally and Religiously. A violation of these rules and regulations will be properly dealt with.?


I don?t know about you, but when I go to a business and the door is locked with a sign that says ?Back in 15 minutes,? I wonder if they just left or have been gone for 10 minutes already, or even a half hour.

A much more useful sign would be announcing the time of return so I could properly gauge my next move.


The KU?basketball squad happens to have an open scrimmage that is free to the public this Saturday morning, the same day as the KU-OU football game for which I have tickets. Seems like a no-brainer to go to that as well.

I am still entered in the Great Pumpkin Race, which starts 9 a.m. Saturday in Hillsboro. Even though I will miss it, my entry fee will go to a good cause, which is the Main Street Ministries food bank.


We are looking forward to being in our new home soon. But not so much looking forward to the actual move. I?ve filled two Dump?sters but really haven?t thrown much away. The stuff we save will come in handy, won?t it?
